Out of Town

Out of town, amongst the trees.
Out of town, you feel so free.
See the birds and hear them sing.
In the distance a church bell rings.

Out of town, you can sit by a stream.
Out of town, close your eyes and daydream.
You’re in the country, where life is slow.
Where people don’t rush, and to a stranger, they say hello.

Out of town, the skylark soars.
Out of town, no rush hour roars.
But gentle movement as barley sways.
And bright blue skies on sunny summer days.

Out of town, the air is clean.
Out of town, much wildlife can be seen.
Grazing deer and the colourful Jay.
Badgers playing in the unmown ley.

Out of town, in narrow lanes.
Out of town, the horses play.
Towing carts, or riding through fields.
Jumping hedges or galloping through the Weald.

Out of town, I feel I can breathe.
Out of town, I don’t want to leave.
For peace and quiet and tranquillity,
Out of town is the place for me.
